Islamic Jihad claimed its militants fired a Fajr 5 which crashed into the sea off Tel Aviv on Thursday, in the first such attack on the heart of Israel since Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi regime fired Scud missiles during the 1991 Gulf war. (Reuters)

The Islamic Jihad in Gaza said the terror group is firing Iranian-made Fajr-5 missiles into Israel.
The Jerusalem Post reported:

The deputy leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Ziad Nakhleh, has said that rockets fired by Hamas and the “Palestinian resistance” at Israeli towns and cities are of Iranian origin, Lebanon’s el-Nashra newspaper reported on Monday.

Some of the weapons were manufactured locally in an Iranian factory, Nakhleh said, adding that the rockets Hamas has fired at Tel Aviv have a range of “up to 80 km.”

However, Nakhleh denied that the escalation of violence by Hamas and Islamic Jihad equated to the implementation of a scenario devised by Iran.

“Did Iran tell Israel to kill [Hamas military wing de facto leader Ahmed] Jabari?” Nakhleh said.

Israel has said that the long-range rockets Hamas has fired at more northern targets including Tel Aviv are Iranian-made Fajr-5 artillery rockets.

Iran’s Lebanese proxy Hezbollah has also fired Iranian-made Fajr-5 rockets — which the terror group named Khaibar-1 rockets — at Israeli targets during the Second Lebanon War in 2006. With a range of approximately 75 km and a 45 kg warhead, the Fajr-5 is launched from a mobile platform that contains up to four rockets per launcher.

  1. Iranian made…That is synonymous with quality.

  2. One of two axioms is at work here:

    Pally/Iranian rockets have have no guidance, since the Pallies firing them have no acumen in mathematics what – so – freakin’ – ever.

    God is swatting these savages’ toys down while reading three novels, inventing a better Pi, and giving the Obama bedroom really bad fung shui, all at the same time.

    Pick one.

  3. Not to worry. A very high level of U.S. Diplomats will be on the way soon. They will sit down with Hamas, Hizb’allah and Iranwill to develop a proper response to the Israeli insistence at living.

    Obama Farce 1 (formerly known as Air Force 1) will make a special trip to observe the signing of any accord.

  4. Iran launched as well.

  5. Time to make the Mideast a nuclear litter box…screw the mooslums

  6. Now if Hamas was winning all would be well but the fact that Israel is hitting back — means hand wringing all over the Middle East and The White House.

    You’ve got that right — Hamas gets a do-over with bigger and better weapons. So they use their people as cannon fodder — never mind. Shed a tear for those poor Pal victims.

  8. The taking points by he progs and MSM are that hamas is firing off fire crackers and israeli is responding with excessive force. Elections have consequences…………….progs.

  9. if those rockets don’t work well enough i sure obama will give them better ones. arming muslim terrorists seems to be a high priority with this administration.
